How do you rebuild a single package in KDE 4.7.4

How does one go about rebuilding just a single package from Eric's KDE 4.7.4? Specifically I would like to rebuild amarok and k3b, but I can not figure out how to build just these two. I understand how to build certain parts such as kdebase or kdeedu, but I can't figure out where in the slackbuild the sources in /extragear get built. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I've attached a k3b build that I use It's basically just a modified version of Pat's script that I pieced together, I always recompile k3b so I can add in the missing deps not included with the stock package. I modified it to use Alien Bob's k3d source version, you will have to grab it off of his page I just tested it and it compiled fine but please look it over and test it for yourself. I make no guarantees but it should work fine.

I don't have a amarok script, but I have thought about recompiling it also, If I come up with anything I'll let you know.

In order to build individual modules from KDE you have to run $ KDE.SlackBuild $KDEMODULE in this case k3b.

The KDE.SlackBuild which you find in the sources will by default not compile anything in extragear but you can add that as a line in the KDEMODS variable or mention it explicitly on the commandline.

Please read for more background info.

You'll need to run the "" script before Amarok will compile. Find it on here, or on any mirror.

Good luck.
